11 Weirdest Things Teachers Have Ever Confiscated

2 min

We asked teachers what were the strangest things they have ever confiscated in their classrooms. Some of the responses were literally unbelievable. We put together a list of the funniest and weirdest ones. Enjoy!

1. “After hearing a girl scream in the middle of class one day, I asked what happened. She told me that one of the boys touched her with a ‘giant booger ball.’ She wasn’t kidding… A couple of the boys were having a contest over who could stick the most boogers together into a massive booger ball. Disgusting!-Mrs. J.

2. “One time, I walked into a study hall and found 2 boys hysterically laughing, while hitting each other with something. I told them to break it up and give me whatever they were using to hit each other. It was 2 fluorescent pink dildos. I can’t even tell you how embarrassed the mother was, when she had to come into school to retrieve them.-Ron P., Fifth Grade

3. “During class one day, a student looked like he was texting under his desk. When I approached him to ask for the phone, I noticed he was rolling a f’n joint in my class!-Carol A.

4. “I once walked in the girl’s bathroom and found a female student selling her mother’s diamond engagement ring to another student. That was one awkward phone call home to mom…-Miss A.

5. “I had a high school student bring in a live octopus in a plastic jar. When I caught him showing his friends, he told me he was planning on putting it in one of the school urinals.-Mr. Bob

6. “One day after school, I ran into a couple of my students in the hallway acting suspicious, hiding something behind their backs. After some resistance, they handed it over. It was a plastic bag, in which the 2 boys had pooped. Apparently, they were going to leave it in their friend’s locker overnight, as a prank!-Mrs. G., Principal

9. “One day, the class clown brought in a universal remote and programmed it to the classroom TV. He kept turning it on during the middle of class. Long story short, I figured it out pretty quickly.” -Monica L.

11. “Once, I walked in the boy’s bathroom and caught kids taking shots of something. When I made them hand over whatever it was they were drinking, it wasn’t alcohol. It was a bottle of snake blood! One of the boy’s dads had just returned from a trip to Thailand. Quite the souvenir!” -Frank T.
